I woke up with soreness between my legs. I stretched in bed and turned my head slightly to see Theodore sleeping peacefully. I gazed at him for a couple of minutes wondering how could someone so beautiful be so cruel and controlling.

Shaking my head to dispel thoughts of my so-called husband I got up and shuffled in the bathroom. I was glad that Theodore didn't have his arm around me otherwise getting out of bed would've been a task in itself.

Once in the bathroom I gazed at myself in the mirror and saw a couple of red hickeys marring my skin. They were just a couple of centimeters apart on my shoulder, mocking me about last nights events. The presence of those hickeys had me second guessing my actions. Did I give in too soon? Did I even give in at all?

My questions were answered when my gaze fell on the shiny platinum band adorning my ring finger. Yes! Damn it I had given in too soon, shoot. How could you do this Hailey?! My sanity returned with a vengeance. In my defence, Theodore took advantage of my exhaustive state last night. My love struck side defended. And you let him take advantage of you, what about the fact that he threatened you, your family just so he could marry you?! My sanity snarled in disbelief.

I quickly did my business and exited the bathroom only to find Theodore awake, leaning against the head board, looking mouth-wateringly sexy. I glared at him, fully accepting the fact that he took advantage of me when I was tired.

"Good morning, sweetheart." Theodore greeted softly. I ignored him and walked over to pick up my purse which was sitting on the dressing table. I took my phone out and saw 60 missed calls. I scrolled through the list and found 20 missed calls for Amanda, 20 from Ingrid, and 20 from my cousin April. Damn it, Amanda must be freaking out by now.

I quickly called Amanda, not caring about the fact that it was probably midnight in New York. Amanda thankfully, picked up after a couple of rings.

"You freakin' b!tch! Where the hell are you, do you have any idea how worried I've been!" Amanda shouted, nearly damaging my ear drum.

"Amanda, calm down, I'll tell you everything, " I started to say only to be cut off by her.

"No you listen to me, Mrs. Hailey Jane Benson!" My heart sank at hearing Amanda refer to my new name.

"Amanda, I can explain." I told her with a heavy heart.

"Explain what, that you went and got married to Theodore without even telling me, let alone inviting me to your wedding." Amanda snarled.

Something just clicked at how in the world did Amanda know that I got married, since the marriage was private with only a few people. "Wait, how did you know I got married?"

"Seriously, do you not watch TV? It's all over the news, how the mega billionaire had finally found the right person to spend the rest of his life with. There are pictures of you two, in your wedding attire, might I add." Amanda told me with hurt evident in her voice.

"Amanda, please listen to me, I can explain, believe me I wanted to invite you." I told her, my voice breaking at the thought of hurting my best friend. By now, Theodore had come up behind me. I could feel his body warmth as it radiated off of his bare chest.

"You wanted to, you should have! I thought we were best friends, Hailey, but I guess I was wrong all this time."

"Amanda, I'll tell you everything once I come back, just please try to understand that I did not want to get married like this—without you." I told her, desperately wishing that she would believe and understand me.

"Don't bother, I don't want to speak to you ever again." Amanda hung up, leaving me to stare at my phone.

"Baby, what's wrong?" Theodore asked concerned, snaking his arm around my waist.

I whipped my head around and looked at him with murder in my eyes. It was all his fault that my best friend was now mad at me. His fault that he disregarded my wishes and forced me to marry him. He was going to pay. I was going to make him pay for ruining my relationship with my best friend.

"Don't touch me, you despicable man." I snarled.

"Hailey, what's the matter?" Theodore was now blatantly confused.

"What's the matter?! You actually have the fück!ng nerve to ask me what is the bloody matter, when you're the cause of everything!" I nearly shouted.

"Hailey, watch your tone." Theodore warned.

"No, screw you, and your demands! I'm done listening to you! Because of you my best friend is mad at me! Because of your selfish demands my friendship is now at stake!" I shouted this time, tears running down in rivulets. Damn these tears.

"How in the world is your friendship at stake because of me?" Theodore asked, making me wonder how in the North Pole was this guy a successful businessman.

"Are you always this dense, or are you deliberately being obtuse?! You forced me to marry you, without even bothering to invite my family and friends, and now my best friend is mad at me, because sadly she is still in the dark about the circumstances of our marriage. This is why, Theodore, this is why she is mad at me, because she wasn't invited to the wedding!" I continued shouting. At the end I

ones. Yeah right, Hailey, a few pillows wouldn't stop him. My inner voice really hated me sometimes.

Satisfied, that the pillows separated us, I got under the covers and closed my eyes. I tried not to give in to sleep so easily, because I wanted to see the look on Theodore's face when he saw my makeshift wall that would result in him keeping his hands to himself.

As Theodore emerged from the bathroom I pretended to sleep.

"What's this?" He demanded, his tone indicating that he was barely restraining himself from unleashing his temper.

"What's what?" I asked innocently.

"What's with the pillows between us?" He growled softly.

"Oh those, I made a makeshift wall between us. Since you're not allowed to touch me, I just took extra measures to ensure I would get a peaceful sleep." I replied.

"You know those pillows can't help you, right?"

I knew they couldn't, but I wasn't going to let him know that. "You're not allowed to touch me until you fix the problem, Theodore." I replied, completely ignoring his question.

He said nothing just calmly went over to his side of the bed. I couldn't believe it, I actually won an argument. Yippee! Now soon Theodore would be under my control.

However, my victory was short lived. Just as I was about to go to sleep, an arm snaked around my waist and tugged me harshly. I yelped as my back collided with a warm, bare chest.

"You can't touch me." I struggled to escape the vice-like grip around my waist, but failing at it miserably.

"Let's negotiate." Theodore nuzzled my neck, waking up the butterflies in my stomach that were sleeping since morning.

"No, no negotiations, Mister. Let go of—" his teeth clamped on my shoulder, making the words die in the middle while giving birth to a sudden scream.

"We are going to negotiate, okay darling?" Theodore sucked on the sams spot he sank his teeth into a second ago.

"I'll poison you and push your body in the Indonesian water." I threatened.

"You are going to let me touch you, whenever I want, however I want, wherever I want; but I wouldn't have sex with you until I fix the problem, okay?" He stated his terms, completely ignoring my murderous remarks.

I stopped fighting against his hold and gave some thought to his terms. Call me crazy and stupid, but his demands sounded reasonable enough. S3x was the ultimate way to control a man, as Amanda taught me, so being okay with touching was something I could agree to, as long as s3x was off limits until he fixed the problem.

"Okay fine, but don't even think about touching me between my legs, or I swear I'll unman you." I relented but not without a threat to his precious manhood.

"Deal, princess, " Theodore kissed my cheek softly. "Now close your eyes, we got a long day ahead of us tomorrow, you'll need your strength." Theodore said and turned off the lamp. I was more than happy to comply with his demand and finally give in to sleep that had been threatening to take me under for the past two hours. I closed my eyes, with Theodore's arm securely wrapped around me, I fell into a deep sleep.
